Welcome to my blog!

I'm an acupuncturist, teacher, fertility specialist, patient centered advocate, mom, activist and more! This blog is a place for me to write down the things on my mind, the things I discuss over and over, and the things I find helpful, interesting, and inspiring all in the hope that someone else out there, maybe YOU, will find some of these things to be helpful, interesting and inspiring too. I love learning, I love sharing, and I am passionate about helping others lead more balanced, fertile, and healthy lives - while trying to do the same myself. So here goes... The Blogging Life...


May Fertility Retreat: It's Hard to Tell a Story when You Don't Know the End...

Maybe it's the ones you anticipate...
    the mother-in-law repeatedly sharing her burning desire to be a grandmother... "I'm not getting any younger!"

Or the one's that blind side you...
    the friend who swore she never wanted kids announcing she's pregnant, "I guess it was meant to be."

The ones that make you want to just stay home...
    the dental hygienist with her hands in your mouth asking, "do you have kids?"

Or the ones that just seem down right cruel...
     "You are SO lucky you don't have kids!"

What do you say when you're feeling speechless, tongue tied, and choked up?

How do you share without over sharing?  Balance educating others with self preservation?

Oh, and did I mention... it's Mother's Day that weekend? (bet you already knew!)

Come to the May 11th retreat, during a month when even the greeting card section seems to be hollering inappropriate and hurtful things you way.

We'll create a sisterhood of women who can relate, we'll be kind to one another, incensed together, and figure out some tactics to go out and face the world!

Let's celebrate Mother's-at-Heart Day together and tell our stories... even if we don't know how they end. You deserve it!
